Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer bagels and beats Adrian Mannarino

Djokovic won the last of his Wimbledon titles in 2015

Angelique Kerber converted her seventh match point to finally get past Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 7-5 and reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the third time. Back in 2008, Nike were so sure the pair would meet in the US Open final that even before the event started they launched an advertising campaign trailing the match. "It will stay this year, it will stay next year", said All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis.

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

He looked flat as he was broken to trail 1-3 but he clawed his way back to lead 5-4 with his serve to come.

Williams dropped just four games as she dispatched Rodina, hitting 30 winners in the process compared to her opponent's five. And he watched it again and again, taking note of Federer's quickness, net game, serve, variety of tactics and, above all, his composure.

"It's true it has been a while", Nadal said about his return to the last eight.

Juan Martin del Potro powered through to only his second Wimbledon quarter-final after beating Gilles Simon.

Federer, who last went to Court One in 2015 for his quarter-final win over Gilles Simon, will be playing in his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final and 53rd at all Grand Slams.

The 2009 U.S. Open champion reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2013, but four wrist surgeries - three on the left - nearly made him retire.

Kei Nishikori - Nick Kyrgios's third-round vanquisher - also marched through, the Japanese superstar stopping fatiguing Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to make his first Wimbledon quarter final.


The women's quarterfinals are underway at Wimbledon.

The only remaining fourth-round match has also resumed on No. 2 Court.

Federer, sublime so far, will be a step up but Anderson is making all the right noises as he prepares for arguably the biggest challenge in tennis.

Elsewhere, Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France. Yaaaas.ICC also posted superimposed pictures of Federer and Sachin Tendulkar in Spiderman costumes.

Wimbledon is set for its annual "Manic Monday" as the fourth round gets underway at the All England Club. Both players are still very emotional talking about it and so are the people who watched it, including younger players who are now in the tennis elite.

Nadal reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 after defeating Jiri Vesely in a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 victory on Monday.

Now the Argentine faces two-time Wimbledon champion Nadal, who allowed him just six games when they last met in the Roland Garros semi-finals in June.
